I have to admit Friday’s come and go and it seems to be faster and faster all the time.  That is one way to deal with Winter, that I’m thankful for.

Susanne at Living to Tell the Story has encouraged us to look into our week and pick 5 things to be thankful for, blessings as they are called. So join us in a weekly FFF as we express ourselves for what we are blessed.

1. Early to bed.  These days I wake up way to early.  I don’t need to get up this early.  No one else is up this early.  I can’ t even make noise this early.  Each day it has been about 12 minutes earlier that I wake up, this causes me to go to bed way to early.  Last night I guess I started snoring and the tv got turned up way to loud so I’d get the message.

2. Dead lines.  I always said that deadlines have a way of making things happen and they do, each week I manage to pull together another small accomplishment.  This week the tedious Anne braids are done and bagged.

3. Clean sidewalks.  I will be blessed that we can get to our mail and I’ll also be thankful that walking will be easier once the sidewalks are clear again.  Seems the city has encouraged the snowmobile club from the exit of the trail to the Irving gas bar by not keeping the sidewalks clean so the sleds can access the sidewalk up to the garage to get gas, cigarettes, coffee, and other important items.  I checked yesterday and there is 17 inches of snow and the streets, sidewalks around are all clean straight to the pavement.

4. FFF. I’m going to take a leave without pay.

5. Finishing up started jobs.  Perhaps I’m not the only one who has a project on the go, a room half painted, steps with the vacuum still on them, and odd socks on my feet.  The pressure of life has been placed upon me and I’m giving it to it.  I notice I was a blog a day person, now I’m lucky if it is a blog a week, and I push myself to be here on Friday.  I got one job finished in the gift shop this week and over the next following weeks I plan to continue finishing up started jobs and I can accomplish this the least amount of distractions.  I painted a mural on the wall where we are hanging the gridwall and product on, sort of a back drop so to speak.

The finished wall

The gridwall is hung now to rearrange

I’ll miss my FFF each week and I’ll think of you and perhaps stop by for a visit once in awhile. Until then I have to get on track and that means less computer time.  It has been fun and rewarding and if you want to see what I’ve been up to, just drop by, ta ta for now.
